She actually lives about 15 miles from where this post is being written. Small world, eh? By way of correction, Mother Margaret Patton is the granddaughter of the World War II general.

If I'm not mistaken the general attended her First Profession of Vows.

Her order is about as traditional as one gets. They chant the Office in Latin throughout the day, along with Mass. The live the authentic Benedictine life (which includes a healthy dose of farm work).

The Bethlehem Abbey of Regina Laudis are something of a local treasure. They often appear on local television. If you're ever up in Connecticut it's surely worth a visit, it's a beautiful, charming, holy place.

Here's their site: http://www.abbeyofreginalaudis.com/

Is this the same Regina Laudis where Mother Dolores Heart (who shared the silver screen with Elvis Presley) resides?


Yes.

Yes, and timing of timings, she's on EWTN this week, on Fr. Pacwa's show.

I remember reading, years ago, an interview with Msgr. James H. O'Neill (Army chaplain and author, at Patton's request, of the famous Prayer For Good Weather) in which he said that General Patton became a Catholic before his death.

I had heard Patton became Catholic, too. In the movie, Patton, played by George C. Scott, is shown kissing a bishop's ring, so it would make sense.

Yes I heard that too. My father swears by it. He also knew one of the men who was present at Patton's death. He told my father that Patton was definetly murdered.
